07/01/2020 – On 20 December, HŽ Infrastruktura and COMSA Corporación signed a contract for the improvement and electrification works of an 18.7 km stretch of the railway line between Vinkovci and Vukovar in eastern Croatia. The aim of the project is to increase the volume of rail freight transport and improve the passenger connection in Vukovar – Srijem County by reducing travel time.
The works, which will last two years, include the reconstruction of the existing Vinkovci – Vukovar track with the improvement and electrification of the different sections, as well as the renovation of the Vukovar – Borovo, Nuštar and Bršadin stations including control subsystems, safety signs, railroad crossing solutions, the construction of pedestrian walkways and improved accessibility for people with reduced mobility, among other elements.
Just a week ago, the railway section between the provinces of Gradec and Sveti Ivan Zabno was also inaugurated in Croatia. COMSA was the construction company commissioned with this very important project, as it was the first new construction in the country in 52 years.
